"My Family: I Could Write a Book", Joan Adler

Many of us have been pursuing genealogical research for twenty or thirty years - or more. When I started writing articles about the people I had been researching, it became apparent how much I didn't know about them, even after all that time and effort. Writing about these people became a valuable tool; one I consider at least as important, if not more so, than my search for documents and vital records.

Some of us are getting older and are beginning to question what will happen to our work when we pass away. Is anyone interested? Who will want it? Should I donate it to some institution or try to find someone within my own family who will care about it.

Speaker: Joan Adler. As director of the Straus Historical Society for 30 years, Adler has researched and written about the lives of many amazing people. Not only has she done genealogical research for the Straus family, she has been able to reconstruct the lives of Straus family members within the context of their social, political, historical and religious environment.
